Reviews

'There is no doubt that this book will serve as an eye opener to corporate leaders.' - Roberto Kertez, MD, Psychiatrist and Rector, University of Flores, Argentina

'This thought-provoking book will be useful to everyone who wants to ensure that their work place is a source of energy and positive self-esteem.' - Susan Jackson, Professor of HRM, Rutgers University, USA

'Dr Simon Dolan's new book, as with all the previous ones and the extensive research work he has conducted over the years on stress - including stress-related health outcomes - is an extremely important contribution...I believe every modern manager should read it!' - Lucien Abenhaim, MD, PhD, Professor of Public Health, University of Paris, former General Director of Health for France and formerly Member of the WHO Executive Board

'Simon Dolan addresses an increasing challenge facing organizations in the Twenty-first century: How can they meet individual needs for growth, respect and meaning and organizational needs for peak performance? Managers all too often see this in either-or terms neglecting employee needs and resulting in the stress epidemic we see all around us. He identifies important antecedents of workplace stress and provides realistic suggestions for keeping stress levels manageable. His use of self esteem - both individual and organizational - as a central organizing concept is both unique and interesting. This book is a must-read for both managers and stress researchers interested in learning more about high performing individuals and organizations.' - Ron Burke, Professor, York University, Canada

'This book provides an engagingly novel vista of the occupational stress field...it blends updated scientific findings in this area with vignettes reflecting case-studies of executive stress and with the author's personal experiences...it incorporates individual predispositions in the employee-organization interactions leading to work-related stress...It also outlines how an organization may have an impact on individual self-esteem like by promoting in its culture and normative supervisory behaviours procedures that incorporate employee recognition, fair treatment, and positive feedback. Finally, all these novel elements are integrated in one unifying framework, allowing readers to comprehend the complexity of interacting employee predispositions, job features, and perceived stress in organizations. I would like to salute the author, for being able to skilfully combine these novel elements in one highly readable new book!' - Arie Shirom PhD, Professor of Organizational Behaviour, Leon Recanati Graduate School of Business Administration, Tel Aviv University, Israel

'This book is a must-read for both managers and stress researchers interested in learning more about high performing individuals and organizations.' - Ron Burke, Professor of Work Environment and Individuals Overall Well- being, York University, Canada.

'There is no doubt that this book will serve as an eye opener to corporate leaders.' - Roberto Kertez, MD, psychiatrist and rector of the University of Flores, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

'This book provides an engagingly novel vista of the occupational stress field; the book content is an effective mix, bound to expand the readers' understanding of the phenomenon of executive stress and its organizational and individual manifestations.' - Arie Shirom, Professor of Organizational Behaviour, Leon Recanati Graduate School of Business Administration, Tel-Aviv University

'This thought- provoking book will be useful to everyone who wants to ensure that their work place is a source of energy and positive self-esteem.' - Susan Jackson, Professor of HRM, Rutgers University and former Editor of the Academy of Management Review.
